Waterstone’s Grower Steet Bookstore, London Copyright 2010 Douglas Stockdale
While in London, I dropped into Waterstone’s Grower Street Bookstore, a huge bookstore with a very diverse and broad range of books. As a testimony of the broad range of books, I found Frank Cancian‘s photobook “Orange County Hosekeepers” among the available photography books, above. Since I already have a copy (signed by Frank no less), I passed on purchasing yet another copy. Congratulations Frank on being such an International known photographer!
I did not leave this book store empty-handed. Although their selection of new photobooks is very extensive, I found another wonderful value, a “used” copy in the second-hand shelves a 2010 second edition of John Gossage’s “Pond“, published by Aperture. As the clerk told me, she had just placed this photobook on the shelf yesterday and she was sorely temped to purchase it herself. Selfishly, I am glad she did not. I will be reviewing “Pond” later this year on The PhotoBook.
You can never tell when and where members of the Photographers Exchange will suddenly appear! ;- )
Best regards, Douglas
